This is from Marilyne Woodsmall and her Blog over at  If you want to get deep into understanding sales, why people buy and don’t buy, how to manage customers, employees, contractors, and even understand all of those people around you that you interact with on a daily basis, this is the cutting edge thinking that is fast replacing the old worn out theories.  The wonderful thing about what she teaches it that it makes sense and will add to your bottom line.

From time to time students and clients will ask us about the other typologies in relation to our People Patterns™, in particular Myers-Briggs. Many of you have probably heard about the Myers-Briggs Inventory at some point. It is a tool that has been used for understanding what are considered to be behavioral preferences and yet, it can be quite limiting in its scope. Meyers-Briggs presents four categories of these so called preferences:

1)Introvert – Extrovert
2)Sensor – Intuitor
3)Thinker – Feeler
4)Judger – Perceiver

However, before I briefly go over these types, it will be helpful to explain three things: 1) the concept of typologies 2) the different forms of typologies 3) the concept of contextuality and 4) the concept of refinement and deep structure, the latter two which we’ll consider in our next article.

A Profitable Website

A Profitable Website

This video is best viewed in full screen mode. Click on the icon to the right of the speaker icon above.

I will be doing another video going over the basics of what you need and of course, WordPress is the only content managements system that I recommend these days.

WordPress currently powers 8.7% of all Websites.
WordPress currently powers 56% of all Websites that have CMS or a Content Management System.

You need to be using CMS and WordPress. This should be your Website if you want to make money. If you don’t have a Blog and update your content on a regular basis, you are losing customers, money, and you are getting killed on Search Engine Placement.

Here is the link to the Tour Page with the Buttons That I speak about in the Video as well as a few other sites.

And if you are willing to be a Guinea Pig, you can pre-order the Software that we used to build the sites for only $77 a month and you get a 30 day free trial. No contracts, no commitments. Not only that, but you will get a Shopping Cart, Up-sells, Coupon Codes, an Affiliate Program, a Membership Program,and an Auto-Responder built in as well. Plus other great good surprises. (and yes, I will get around to putting in a fancy button here too, but the most important thing is to have a way for people to give you money. You can sign up for out Beta launch of LaunchBrain by going clicking on the image below. Make sure you put in 21 in the Invited By box.

OK, I am going to go over some of the basics that you need to have no matter what, as well as a number of things that I see big companies and even well know Web Gurus are doing wrong with their Websites in the next video.

These are easily correctable and often overlooked.

Also, for those of you interested, if you don’t feel up to doing a site like the ones I show you in the video, we can do ones like them from turn key (you have to provide the content, although we can create it for a fee if you want) from $1,490 to about $4,900 for most small business sites. Larger sites are more of course. But typically, we are 1/2 to 1/3rd the cost of other solutions. We can also provide turnkey solutions on a monthly basis as well. If you are interested, just contact me and we will get you taken care of right away. Also, we can convert your existing Website to WordPress and LaunchBrain so that it is easy to use and maintain and help make it profitable.

Learn From History About Black Revolutionary’s

OK, this is way off the beaten path here, but as a student of real History and Economics, I learned early on that what we learn in Grade School, High School and especially College is so biased by Progressives and has been sanitized to fit PC requirements it is not even funny and it is just plain wrong in most things.

From the real story of the first Thanksgivings Celebration of throwing off Socialism, to our own Government Officials openly praising Mao and having an ornament of him on last year’s Christmas tree, who also happens to be the biggest Mass Murderer in the History of Mankind, to who actually flew first, and to who probably really  invented the Telephone.  And no, it was not the Wright Brothers, nor Alexander Graham Bell.

I did a blog post on these on one of my other blogs and may post it here but I don’t want to get too far off track.  🙂

I was doing a very rare thing today in that I actually turned on the TV during a short break and was flipping through channels and came across this about the Revolutionary War and the lost history of Black Americans in it.  Not as slaves, but as welcomed and honored participants.  I also learned that the Abolitionists in order to make a case against slavery, did their best to wipe this out.   Stupid is, is stupid does I guess.

Anyway, here is what I watched today the really ticked me off and made me like our Founding Fathers even more and only reinforces to me why America is the best country that has ever been in existence and that we have so much to be proud of and screw the people that say we should be ashamed of America.   Your an idiot if you think that way and if that is you, please go away now.  🙂  Just saying… For those of you still here, enjoy! You are in for a treat!


Your Most Valuable Asset In Business

The Answer And A Video Explanation Of Your Most Valuable Asset

So, what do you think your most valuable asset in business is that you have?  If you are like the rest of the go getter’s out there, we have a tendency to think that if we work a little harder, a little longer, and put in more of ourselves we will solve the issue of of the moment.

Now you would think that if you just could put a little more time in, you could get it done.  Well guess what?  No matter how well you manage your time, it won’t matter.  Will you get more done for a while? Of course but you can’t run effectively day after day at full tilt for 16,17, 18 hours a day.

Your most valuable Asset In Business is your energy levels.  If you go after a problem after you are well rested and healthy and your head is in the right place, then you can solve many problems or issues that come up in a manner of minutes.  Yet you try and do the same high level task when you are tired and it could easily take you hours to come up with the same quality of solution.

In the book ” The Power Of Full Engagement” by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz they bring up some very good statistics and examples of why this is true.

Working With Your Competition Equals Profits

Work With Your Competition And Make More Money?

While this may sound crazy, this is one of those counter-intuitive techniques that I see very few businesses using that is one of my top 5 Profit Secrets.

First off, most people don’t even consider it.  Their competition is their competition.

But for those that do, there may not be easier profits to be had.

For one, it is truly free.  It usually just involves a phone call or an email to get the ball rolling.

Secondly, in many cases, your competition is not really your competition anyway.  If you are in a decent sized niche, if you pick the right company, you both end up coming out so far ahead of the game it is not even funny.

I find this in the Consulting end of things especially but, it is true no matter what you are selling.  You both have a customer base and you may even be selling the same products, but at any given moment, that customer base may not want to buy what you are selling, so why not offer them your competitions products or services and make money from them?

Are You Staying Local And Being A Yokel?

Local YokelAre you staying local in your business and being a Local Yokel?

I have seen this quite a bit recently with many businesses when it comes to searching for talent or opportunity for their business.  Be it Web Design, SEO, sales, or Consulting Help, and even new customers.

The businesses that do this are seriously shooting themselves in the foot.  In fact to use yet another gruesome analogy it is like throwing a Frog in a pot of cold water and turning on the heat until it boils.  The Frog won’t jump out, but if you put him in Hot water, they hop right out.

In other words, you won’t know you are cooked until it is too late.

Just think about it.  There are now millions of people that you can reach on the Web and just from a statistics standpoint, the guy or gal down the street is not going to even be in the top 5% best at what they do but, the person that you can snag on the Internet is?

Do Pop Ups Annoy You Too?

OK, Pop Ups annoy me.  I know that they can used to make you money but I am not convinced they do any more. Because as I have noted, when I go to a site, usually as sales site, I try and leave the page. If they have one, I don’t bother ready the rest of it accept on very rare occasions.

I put them on my you just wasted a couple seconds of my life list and I don’t want to have anything to do with whatever you are selling list.

Pop Ups are kind of like the Disco Balls, they were really cool for a little while, but if you put them everywhere they are a bit annoying and it is like having one in your office to show how “cool” you are. Continue reading Pop Ups – Do They Bug You Too? Post Them Here!
